Mississippi Treasurer David McRae was re-elected unanimously Tuesday as Vice President of the National Association of State Treasurers (NAST). McRae is the 55th Treasurer of the State of Mississippi. In this role, he helps manage the state’s cash flow, oversees College Savings Mississippi, and has returned more than $55 million in unclaimed money to Mississippians.

“It’s an exciting opportunity to continue highlighting Mississippi values, including fiscal accountability and personal responsibility, on a national stage through NAST,” said McRae. “Since 2020, we have protected the state’s credit rating, stimulated our state’s economy by returning $55 million of unclaimed money to citizens, and helped thousands of families begin saving for college. It’s an honor that my peers recognized these accomplishments as well, and I look forward to sharing Mississippi’s best practices with others.”

McRae represents the Southern Region on NAST’s Executive Board. The region includes Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Georgia, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Virginia.
